Bombshell: News Corp. says it has no record of DOJ notification of Rosen subpoena
Twitchy ^

Posted on 05/26/2013 7:15:23 PM PDT by Perdogg

The “tonight’s news” referred to by The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza comes via the New York Times:

Wow, tonight's news dramatically escalates the war between DOJ and Fox. Somebody is not telling the whole truth.— Ryan Lizza (@RyanLizza) May 27, 2013



News Corporation said on Sunday that it had no record of being notified by the Justice Department nearly three years ago of a subpoena for the telephone records of a reporter at its Fox News cable channel [James Rosen].

The company’s chief legal counsel at the time also said that he had never seen material from the government related to the subpoena.



Lawrence A. Jacobs, who was News Corporation’s chief legal officer until he left in June 2011, said he never saw a notification about the phone records.

“I would have remembered getting a fax from the Justice Department,” Mr. Jacobs said in an interview Sunday. “These are not the kinds of things that happen every day.”

When Fox sues the Obama Admin....then I will take more interest

This story is becoming more like Michael Savage banned by the UK. Lots of outrage...little action. OK at least Savage tried to fix his situation somewhat

It was a double-secret probation subpoena.

Once Holder resigns, I hope they raise John Vernon from the dead and make him Attorney General.

If someone isn’t telling the whole truth, or any truth for that matter, it is guaranteed to be the person associated with the us government.

They likely sent a letter, but if it’s a registered letter...some guy in the post department would have signed, and then looked at the addressing if confusing to figure out who should get it.

My humble guess is that he noted some secretary up in the legal area....she’s in retirement mode, and it just got filed, rather than read by any lawyer. Stuff like this happens all the time in big organizations, with confused department headings.

I though DOJ had already explained that they had to keep the warrant secret because it involved not only past communications but also potentially years of future communications. Why would the notify Fox?

Can someone explain to me, what the heck all this means?

The article says that Fox news “confirms” that they were notified three years ago about the DOJ getting the emails of Rosen. So now they’re saying they weren’t notified.

can someone unravel this?

That’s what I’m going to say.

“You didn’t get a check from us this month? I’ll bet it got lost with all that DOJ mail. Ask Eric Holder. Maybe he’s seen our check.”

It’s a mess alright. Some FoxNews official stated they had rec’d notice. This was yesterday.

Somebody might be introducing reasonable doubt for the DOJ. Or News Corp is lying. Or the FoxNews official from Saturday is lying....

A huge mess!

+++++++++++
That’s my recollection as well. They got a judge to allow them to withhold the normal notification.

If so then there’s no story here. If not then it’s a big deal.

That’s why important document are sent certified mail returned receipt requested. Unless they have a signature from a FOX emplyee of substance there is no proof in a court of law that it was ever sent

No documentation. No proof

Wonder if Rosen was just a way for the DOJ to monitor the phones of ALL Fox employees and the Rosen request was only a cover.

Wasn't that the judge who was apologizing last week for signing the initial authorization order?

There are records at Fox and at Justice if notice was sent. I believe that the notice to Fox is in the same drawer as the Holder recusal letter. That would be the drawer where Holder keeps his blank stationary, because at this point neither one exists.

I hope they do a better job on this than the forgery they id on the long form.

I think it was Judge Lamberth. But I’m not sure if he signed the original order. In fact I’m pretty sure he didn’t. He overruled the judge who signed it and allowed Justice to withhold the Rosen notification.

I read it yesterday out of the NY Times. Thread below:

On Saturday, a Fox News executive said that the notice had gone to News Corp., its parent company, on Aug. 27, 2010, but that Fox News was not told until Friday. The executive said they were still trying to sort out how the notice fell through the cracks.

Unnamed source at Fox, naturally.

I'm baffled as to WHY the DOJ would "notify" a reporter, ANY reporter that their phones are tapped.

Isn't the whole idea of a tap to catch someone doing something wrong?

Hi, Mr. Soprano? Yes, this is the DOJ, just a friendly call to let you know that were recording everything you say.

Click.
